The Giffords were among the earliest settlers in Westport and, even today, the name “Gifford” remains a common surname among local residents. Local historian and genealogist Richard Gifford discusses the English origins of the Giffords, their early Quaker experiences in Sandwich and traces their first settlements and houses in Westport. We invite all local Giffords to share their own family histories too at this program. Suggested donation $5.
